Interested in joining the ACBS? Have a friend who would like to join? The ACBS Chesapeake Bay Chapter (CBC) welcomes all new members from age 1 to 100. Some of the many benefits of membership include:
- Annual Membership Directory
A comprehensive listing of ACBS members and their contact information. This is a great resource for those who are restoring or preserving an antique or classic boat.
- The ACBS Rudder
Annual membership includes four issues of the Antique & Classic Boat Society’s official magazine.
- Marine Insurance at a discount
ACBS members are eligible for a 10% premium discount on boats insured through Hagerty Classic Marine Insurance, Inc.
- Invitations to chapter events throughout the year.
- Information about related events in and around the Chesapeake Bay area.
Boat ownership is not required! Only an interest in antique and classic boats and a desire to make new friendships are needed to join us.
The ACBS/Chesapeake Bay Chapter’s Annual Boat Festival is held every Fathers’ Day weekend at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michael’s, Maryland. This event is fun for the whole family! Come see more than 100 antique and classic boats displayed in the water and on land, shop with our 60+ artisans and vendors, attend seminars focused on the restoration and preservation of antique and classic boats, and bring the kids to participate in some kid-friendly maritime activities.
The annual Oktoberfest river run and picnic marks the end of the boating season for us. While the weather may not always cooperate, a little rain doesn’t stop us from enjoying good food and drink and the company of good friends.
This is only a sample of our typical activities. Check out our calendar of events.
